RE: [FJGRailroad] Re: Ex-PC/FJG boxcars
- Berlin Mills Railway was the Berlin Mills Railway. Owned by the Berlin
Paper Mills in Berlin NH and later by the subsequent owners. Interchanged
with the B&M south of Berlin and CN at Berlin. They had a large operation
which I think was diminished when WestVaCo took over the mill. WestVaCo I
was told had their own trucking operation. I don't have my indices so I
can't refer you to any articles but the road has been very well written up
in the fan mags over the years. Today neither B&M nor CN serves Berlin. I
believe it's the St. Lawrence and Atlantic that replaced the CN, but do not
know who replaced the B&M if the line is running at all (It was pretty
maintenance heavy up there in beautiful northern NH. Out around Cherry Pond
and Waumbec Jct., was one of the most magnificent places I've ever worked. I
suppose there are houses in here now.)
I do not know who owns the Berlin Mills reporting marks or whether the road
still operates in the mill.
